TN: Government Tiruvannamalai Medical College Hospital to get 12 dialysis unit installations


TIRUVANNAMALAI: The Government Tiruvannamalai Medical College Hospital (GTMCH)  will soon receive Twelve dialysis unit installations. The  District Collector Prashant M. Wander has informed that the unit may come up in the old Government Hospital Building at Chengam Road. The installation decision has been taken  as there has been no dialysis facility available to patients at the hospital till now.

The  District Headquarters Hospital in the area  also has no dialysis facility installed on its premises. The Rangammal Memorial Hospital located at  Chengam Road  is the only health facility that provides a dialysis facility and that too at a fee.

According to GTMC, Dean, R. Jayanthi, each unit would cost approximately Rs. Six lac or Rs.seven lac  and  the installation premises would have  reverse plant built  to supply treated water required for the dialysis units. It  would take a couple of months for the entire unit to come up, added the Dean, GTMCH.
